They will provide insights separating hype from reality and differentiating incremental improvements to true innovation across devices, networks, and platforms. David Kerr, a Senior Vice President at Strategy Analytics, commented “With over 2000 exhibitors and thousands of product and service announcements, the words best in class, first and unique may well be exhausted over the 4 days of the congress! However, we do expect significant advances in service provider and solutions vendor offerings around 5G, network slicing, virtualization, and digital transformation.” Kerr added, “We anticipate a tsunami of IoT agreements and partnerships in advance of significant business and consumer spending in the segment.”
